BIRD TOURS IN COMFORT
Do you love to watch birds? Do you particularly love to learn about them and understand their lives – by appreciating their habitat, their history, and the other animals that share their world?
We love to take time to watch the birds, and time to enjoy the spirit of a place. Because a bird is not alone – it needs an ecosystem to support it. Watching leads to understanding, and understanding leads to better protection for our birds.
This style of bird watching is comfortable. Early morning and late afternoon walks and drives are still recommended, but are optional; middle of the day is for relaxing over lunch and taking a siesta. We allow time for looking at plants, scenery, other animals, people, culture and history where it is relevant and important. As much as possible we give you options so you can bird your way.
